OutdoorLads is  returning to the stunning location of Wells-Next-the-Sea on the Norfolk Coastline for a Springtime weekend. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Wells has a beautiful coastline with some fantastic walking to offer over this late Spring weekend!

The hostel in Wells is a small, but modern and comfortable hostel, converted from a old church hall. With well kept rooms and a number of small lounges to relax in, it's a great hostel, positioned in the town so that we can make use of the amenities there, but with walks available from the doorstep. 

On the Saturday there will be a long (but relatively flat) day walk to stretch your experience of the coast, taking in endless seas and skies, not to mention plenty of cake and coffee! There may be the option of a bus on the way back for those that prefer a shorter amble. In either case, there are pubs and cafes available at the half way point for refreshment!

This is the Norfolk coast, so do expect some breeze, and some hills despite being considered a flat county! 

On the Sunday, after clearing the hostel, those who have time have a choice of a range of activities-from a visit to Holkham nature reserve and Holkham Hall - or even Holkham beach - or a visit to England's largest seal colony on a boat trip out at Blakey Point - which is fantastic, and a Norfolk must-do! As Norfolk is well known for being flat, it's the perfect location for some road biking if anyone would like to bring their bike along. (No ODL-led ride planned, however.) 

For the culture aficionados Norwich is only a short drive away - a beautiful fusion city full of historical wonder, fab restaurants and cafes.

Breakfast will be provided on both days, with a cooked dinner on Saturday evening, and of course, the traditional OutdoorLads buffet on Friday evening. On Saturday evening, there's an opportunity to visit a local pub for those who fancy it, or simply relax and chat to others in the hostel. 

Dogs: Up to two very well behaved dogs can attend this event, but only by prior arrangement with the event leader (e-mail support@outdoorlads.com ) and at a cost of £30 per dog (this is a YHA charge.) Those with dogs will be allocated a specific bedroom, and remain responsible for the dog at all times, which must be kept out of the food preparation and dining areas. (Both dog places now taken.)
